Whenever a couple visits the clinic for getting the treatment of IVF, it is important for them to understand that in this treatment, it is mainly necessary for women to take hormonal injections because in a natural cycle only one egg is produced in women. Through IVF, doctors try to extract safe and maximum eggs from a woman’s body through a cycle. To carry out this effort, it is necessary to give hormonal injections.

Patients are given doses above the normal (supraphysiological level). These hormones are also formed naturally in the body, so it is quite safe. These injections or these hormones are passed out of your body daily through your urine and kidneys, so your doctors give you daily doses of injections.

If starting IVF, how many hormonal injections should be taken in a day?

For Indian women, it can be taken in about 8 – 12 days. The special devices used to give injection like pen device has fine needles that are designed for no/least pain. These injections are usually given in the arms, abdomen, or thighs, depending on the type of injection you are given. Initially, these injections are given in 4 – 6 days.

Many patients take these injections on their own, at home. These 4 – 5 injections are usually given with recombinant follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and human menopausal gonadotropin (HMG).

4 – 6 days after taking the injections, the doctor does a blood test and internal sonography. In this sonography, egg growth, and size are checked. After this, more injections are given for 2-4 days and again internal sonography is done after which the dose of the last injection is decided which is called Trigger Injection in medical language.

These sonography doctors try to do in 3D with power dopler, as in this, your follicle is enhanced. When a 3D or power dopler like blood flow is checked, it helps the doctor to understand an estimate of egg maturity, quality, and quantity.

Further, based on these three, the patient is provided with basic guidelines about the match about the predicted success rate. Along with 3D sonography, if you can see power dopler or vascularity, then you can get a good idea about IVF success rate. The dose of the last injection, which is called the trigger, is determined on a case-by-case basis, but egg pickup occurs approximately 36-38 hours after it is determined.
